The Hyper-Rapid Magnetic Cannon uses a Gatling-style array of railguns—cannons that use electrically-induced magnetism to accelerate a projectile to hypersonic speeds—to achieve incredible fire rates. The projectiles launched by this weapon are 3mm metal shards, but their kinetic energy is far superior to normal bullets, making their penetration capabilities and effective range on par with a HMG. Due to their size and weight, HMCs are mounted weapons used exclusively by armored units.
